Continuous Ink Systems: Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why would I want to add a continuous ink system (CIS) to my printer?

Quite simply, to save money. If you print an 11 x 8.5 photo, you are using as much ink as 40 pages of text! - Using a CIS allows you to use a good quality photographic ink in bottles, which works out at around one fifth of the ink cost!

Q: How do you install a CIS - it looks complicated!

Don't worry, it comes completely assembled; the reservoirs are already connected to the tubes, and the tubes are already connected to the cartridges. Simply fill up the reservoirs with ink, take out a bung from each cartridge, pull the ink through using syringes provided, replace bungs and click the cartridges into the printer. Test for a perfect nozzle check, and Print!

Q: How does a Continuous Ink System work?

On a desktop printer, the print head pulls ink from the cartridge using a charge of vacuum generated by the printer. A CIS changes the cartridge from being a single ink chamber into a cartridge connected by a tube to a larger ink tank. In use, the print head pulls ink from the cartridge, which is pulling ink from the tube, which pulls ink from the larger reservoir/tank.
